150 years ago, a city on the Mississippi River became the focal point of two nation's ideals. President Jefferson Davis calls Vicksburg ''the nail that holds two halves of the Confederacy together.'' President Abraham Lincoln called Vicksburg the key, ''the war can never be brought to a close until that key is in our pocket.'' On July 4, 1863, Vicksburg fell to Union forces and the beleaguered Confederacy lost any chance of victory in the West. Vicksburg did indeed prove to be the Union's ''Key to Victory.''
